Continuing his address to the celebration of Victory Day, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, explained that in the Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna says something very simple to Arjuna: Nistrai-gunyo bhav Arjuna.* At the end of all of Krishna's teaching in the Bhagavad-Gita, Arjuna says to him, Smritir labdha, 'I have regained my memory.'
Arjuna remembers who he is, he remembers himself; he remembers that he is truly unbounded pure Being, unattached. He is one and the same with those he is fighting in the battle [in the Bhagavad-Gita, between those embodying righteousness and those embodying evil].
Arjuna realizes that there is nothing other than himself, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam explained, and that 'all that is being experienced and being lived is an illusion of some level of perception—the point of view where there is difference: there is good, there is bad; there is transformation, there is evolution, there is growth; there is something that prevents evolution, prevents growth; there is a challenge to evolution, a challenge to growth.
'All of this has to come into place,' Maharaja continued. 'It has to be enacted, it has to be gained, it has to be strengthened from the level of Wholeness into Wholeness, into greater and greater Wholeness—until Totality, absolute unboundedness, is achieved. That is the victory that is being celebrated today.'
Maharaja then explained that in the Ramayana there is the perception of bad: Ravana wants to prevent the Rishis** from performing their Yagyas.*** He sends his representatives into the forest to create noise and disturb the Rishis' performance of action in accordance with Natural Law, 'so he is the non-Natural Law,' Maharaja said.
In the Bhagavad-Gita, 'Arjuna's action is fully in accordance with Natural Law; and here [in the Ramayana] is action fully against Natural Law—to prevent Nature from performing its expansion, to prevent Natural Law from taking its natural course of evolution and growth.'
The value that is full of itself challenging Natural Law [Ravana] is what we call total bad, Maharaja said. 'But ultimately, when Raam removes that ignorance, that side of Ravana, we find that it's also part of total Natural Law. Indeed, when we look deeply in the Ramayana, Ravana had a role to play in order to create a new phase of evolution. . . .'
'Today's victory, therefore, is the victory of truth over non-truth; the victory of enlightenment over ignorance; the victory of unboundedness, infinity, over point values—perception of oneself as being a point, as being a reality that is limited, whether one is acting in good or in bad. And of course, good is better than bad. It helps us on the path of evolution.
'It's not to compare the two or make them equal in any way, but just to take our attention to the enlightenment that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi has given to the world. It was so beautifully said by Maharishi, that peace is not an endeavour; it's not a process that one has to struggle with, or fight for, or make a cause of one's life. Peace is something that comes from a simple, natural reality of existence in tune with Natural Law, by enlivening Wholeness in one's life—and then all the other aspects come as part of the natural, normal existence of a human being or a society.'

* In Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on the Bhagavad-Gita: A New Translation and Commentary, Chapters 1-6, Maharishi explains that this verse (chapter 2, verse 45) means literally, 'Be without the three Gunas' (the three forces of Nature). However, Maharishi explains, its deeper meaning is 'Transcend': go beyond the finest level of thinking to experience pure awareness, the silent, unbounded field of Transcendental Consciousness, the basis of the mind's activity, which is beyond all duality. Maharishi's Technologies of Consciousness, including the Transcendental Meditation Programme, allow the individual to experience the effortless process of transcending in a systematic, reliable, repeatable manner.
** Rishis: Vedic seers, individuals who experience and live the Totality of life.
*** Yagyas: Vedic performances that are fully in accord with Natural Law and bring the evolutionary influence of total Natural Law to a specific situation or purpose.
